Irrigation Canal Dry for Repairs

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA- Hundreds of families and farmers will be without irrigation water for at least another two days.

Bulldozers today ripped out the concrete from a stretch of the main canal off Clodfelter Road.

The canal sprung a leak yesterday.

Ditch workers discovered the leak after homeowners along Badger Road noticed water running through their backyards.

The Kennewick Irrigation District put those families up in hotels overnight as a precaution while workers drained the canal.

KID says it could take a week or more to finish repairs and get water back into the canal.
